This was a wonderful and surprisingly hearty husband (a total carnivore) was raving about it. I didn't have any dried tarragon for the dressing, so substituted a pinch or dried fennel instead. When plated, this looks so elegant. Will definitely be making again!

My husband LOVED this dish. ~I too really liked it- but may go a bit lighter with the lemon next time- and I am a huge lemon lover!!! The marinade was super fantastic on the salmon and it was wonderful underneath the broiler. A really nice recipe to play with. Thanks!

I made this again the other night, and it is devine. It looks beautiful on the plate, and it tastes as good as it looks! I have also made this with mahi mahi, and it was equally as good. Serve it up with some chilled white wine, and you've got a gormet meal. Thanks for sharing!
